Gay Hairdresser Refuses to Cut Governor's Hair Over Gay Marriage Issue
Eagle Rising ^ | 03/04/2014 | Onan Coca

Posted on 03/04/2014 9:01:09 AM PST by tonyome

What will the fascist gay lobby say now?

Governor of New Mexico, Susana Martinez, has been told by her gay hairdresser that he will no longer be working on her coif. It seems that her hairdresser, Mr. Antonio Darden, does not appreciate the Governor’s stance on homosexuality and gay marriage. Because of this he will no longer cut her hair.

Martinez is being discriminated against because of her Religion.

Absolutely! Without a law in place to allow the hair dresser to refuse service, he cannot refuse her based on religion, politics, etc.

Oh, don’t worry.....I am sure that there will be some ‘twisted logic’ response given, that the MSM wil lap up as being ‘fair and impartial’ to the gay hairdresser, all while making the christian bakers stance seem that much more discriminatory..

He’ll actually see an increase in business over this. Most don’t get the reason for the gay agenda. Most think it’s as simple as giving gays rights and that they’re being denied rights. Keeping the public stupid is Job 1 for the dems.

Why would anybody want to go to a baker - sorry, hair stylist - that doesn’t want to bake their wedding cake - sorry, bake their ‘celebration of same-sex commitment - sorry, cut their hair. Makes absolutely no sense to me.

Oh, wait! I’ve got it. They want to punish the baker - sorry, hair stylist - for having thoughts contrary to their own.

I, for one, would never want to have my memories of a special day - sorry haircut - tainted by bad memories.

"twisted logic"

Of course...the gov. is clearly a hater...the hairdresser, by virtue of being a homosexual, is not a hater. Therefore, he gets to discriminate against the gov. while the cake bakers, against their consciences, have to bake cakes for homo weddings. That's liberal logic for you.

Yes, it's a two way street. It's been established law for 50 years. Under the 1964 Civil rights act, the public accommodation clause, the hair dresser is breaking the law. If your open for business, you must serve all customers wishing to do business, and able to financially do so.

Yes...and the state should pull his license for discriminating!

Compare and contrast:

1) A baker provides all manner of service for gay customers, except for baking a cake for a “gay wedding” due to religious objections.

2) A gay hairdresser refuses any service to a customer solely on the basis of political differences.

Clearly, setting aside “protected status” of the parties involved, the second case is far more morally objectionable than the first one - the first case discriminates not against the customers themselves, but for a specific service that the provider believes is against his/her religious beliefs, whereas the second case discriminates directly against the customer.

And yet, the baker is an evil bigot and the hairdresser is a courageous defender of the downtrodden. Welcome to modern day Gemh... er... America.

The double standard is what really annoys me here. Personally, I believe that in both cases, the service provider is within their rights to refuse service to any customer they don’t want to do business with, regardless of whether or not anyone else agrees with their decisions.

The double standard:

normal people are always wrong.
government-approved victim group members are always right.

there is no other right and wrong.

if christians bakers are forced to bake cakes for gay weddings, a gay stylist should be forced to to do this.

of course then wouldn’t trust him to do a good job.

Absolutely agree. The double standard is always what upsets me about these type things.

Of course, as a friend said, had the baker been smart enough to just say we already are booked solid that day or we have a previous commitment that day, there would have been no lawsuit.

I’ve got a cousin that has a gay son and she’s always up in arms over some example or another of a gay person being discriminated against, yet when the double standard is pointed out, they’re always stupid and should have to ‘experience it firsthand’ as she has. *sigh* I keep telling her that because her son is gay doesn’t mean SHE experienced being gay and discriminated against firsthand. *banging head against wall*
